Motor City Drum Ensemble is the house/techno moniker of Stuttgart’s Danilo Plessow (Inverse Cinematics) who is also running the new Four Roses label. Motor City Drum Ensemble concentrates on Danilo’s electronic side. Before he started to go more leftfield/broken-beat-ish with his Inverse Cinematics project, he already was heavily influenced by the likes of Larry Heard, Chez Damier, UR, Moodymann, or Mike Huckaby. Labels like Soul City, KMS, Prescription, Harmonie Park and “deep deep house” in general have always been a big part in his DJ sets.

Besides his work for Inverse Cinematics (a project with Joachim Tobias) and solo releases on Pulver he also recorded tracks under the guises Hipster Wonkaz and Aphro Pzyko for Pablo Valentino’s Faces label and Mad Mats’ Raw Fusion imprint.

After releases on Compost Black Label and Four Roses there is a new Motor City Drum Ensemble coming up. Entitled “Sun Sequence/Feel the Love” the 12″ features two quite unique tracks: The A-Side (“Sun Sequence”) is a dark, repetitive and haunting piece of post-Detroit techno. “Feel The Love” on the B-Side slows things down a little, but keeps the dark mood, adding some of that oldschool sample flavour to create a trippy afterhour track.

The 12″ vinyl Motor City Drum EnsembleSun Sequence/Feel the Love” (Four Roses) is going to be released October 31, 2008.
